Copying the Masters: Intro to Landscape Painting


SATURDAYS, 9:30 AM - 12:30 PM

This class is on-going, you can sign up at any time, and new students can try one class for $30. 

In this class, we will be copying master landscape paintings by artists such as Sanford Gifford, Frederick Church, and Ivan Shishkin. Master copies are a great way to learn what makes a successful painting - strong composition, organized value structure, color palette, and expressive brushwork can all be considered while working closely with the works of these iconic landscape painters. This class is good for inexperienced painters and experts alike. If you are a beginner, you will learn a method for developing a painting using an underpainting, palette organization, paint handling, and materials. We may also do some color and value mixing exercises as needed. Again, because of small class size, I am able to tailor this class to the needs of each student.

* in May this class will switch to a plein-air painting class at Oak Ledge Park in Burlington, VT
